Looks and Matching Masterclass (2 Days with Warren) October 27,28

Bring your movie or sequence to life. We will review movie sequences, discussing how the color and mood has enhanced the film. You will learn how to create the traditional “Looks” from Movies, TV commercials and Music Videos. We will then focus on matching those ‘Looks’, not only shot to shot, but also how to apply the look across a whole scene. Warren works with different cut sequences, each showcasing his techniques to getthe best from each version.

Media Used:

TVC beauty type commercial shot on the BMCC. Great for doing very soft/mist type looks. A war sequence shot on Sony F3. Fantastic for a ‘Saving Private Ryan’ Bleach Bypass grade, a hot jungle look, or the classic Day for Night feel. ‘House of Cards’ reconstruction, based on the original scene shot on Arri Alexa. This includes dialogue and re-inacts the original scene from the classic Netflix series. Warren will then address the different challenges presented by each sequence. Students then get the chance to do the same in a timed situation, like a real session but with Warren playing the client’s role. Students are also encouraged to bring their own footage to work on and share with the class.

Great for any current Resolve Colorists with at least 1 years experience or previous students who have completed either the ICA Basic R201 or Advanced R201 classes.

You are required to bring your own laptop to the class.

What You'll Learn:

  • Using LUTs in a creative way.
  • Using Plugins and Resolve presets.
  • Preloading your timeline with Nodes.
  • Log grading v Lift Gamma Gain
  • Advanced keying and curve control
  • Power Windows used in a creative way
  • Spot colors
  • Bleach Bypass
  • The ‘Wishy Washy’ flat look
  • The Film Print Look
  • Day for Night
  • Classic Black and White
  • Orange and Teal

How to approach a session, when to push the grade and when to hold back. Learn from Warren about how he deals with clients in the room. Create established looks and explore how to make new ones. Remember it’s subjective so just play and have fun. Students are encouraged to bring their own material.
